025. Air ship

This is one of our more difficult projects, but if you’re up for the challenge, it’s also one of our coolest! Take this one slowly and remember to be patient with yourself and the materials. If you’d like to take creative matters into your own hands, the shapes of things like the wings and fins can be changed at will, or you could even redesign the whole gondola! Have fun with it!

Dimensions: 10″ long; 6″ wide (over wings); 6″ high
